    October has been Domestic Violence Awareness Month for a couple of decades now and still some folks don’t get it.  You might see a purple ribbon.  Maybe some businesses and communities string some purple lights in their windows, but what are we doing this year to increase awareness and honor the lives torn apart by this particularly insidious form of violence against women?

    There is a National Coalition Against Domestic Violence and we’re lucky to have its new Executive Director, Ruth Glenn join us to talk about what different groups around the country are doing to raise awareness about DV.  She worked for the Colorado Department of Human Services for 28 years and served as the Director of the Domestic Violence Program (DVP) for the last nine of those years.  Ruth has worked and volunteered in the domestic violence field for over 19 years and holds a Masters’ in Public Administration (MPA) from the University of Colorado Denver, Program on Domestic Violence, as well as a degree in Communications.

    She has served on many domestic violence program and funding boards, provided hundreds of presentations on domestic violence victimization and survival, testified before the Colorado State legislature, appeared on local and national television, and provided consultation, training and technical assistance on a local and national level on victim/survivor issues as they relate to domestic violence. 

    Join us Saturday at 11 am Pacific Time to as we discuss what we are doing to improve understanding of intimate partner violence.

    Call-in with your comments to (646) 378-0430.

    Mother and Daughter Domestic Violence Chat ft. New Music and Vega Shaw Interview

    in Radio

    In this episode of GaptoothDiva Radio, we discuss the serious issue of domestic violence with the home. However, tonight’s conversation isn’t about between man, woman, lover, spouse, or partner, like many of the conversations we hear about often. Tonight’s DV conversation centers on Mother and Daughter. With so many stories surfacing about daughters killing their mothers, mother being arrested for assault, we wanted to allow space for honest dialogue about this issue on our platform. We know firsthand that the mother daughter dynamic can often be challenging and tumultuous at times, unlike the fairy tale friendships that we used to see on television. Tonight we chat about this issue and how we can potentially make a change.

    Listen in as we come back with more of the off the cuff entertainment but with real and honest conversation surrounding topics related to you. Using Fashion, Music, Culture, Entertainment, and Lifestyle, I’esha GaptoothDiva holds no punches in an effort to inspire you to be as phenomenal as you were born to be.

    Featuring new music and interview with singer Vega Shaw - https://twitter.com/VegaShaw
